The major league trading deadline is under 12 hours away. There has already been a ton of player movement the past two days and it seems like the Miami Marlins have already finished their heavy lifting, after dealing Ricky Nolasco to the Los Angeles Dodgers earlier this month.
Going to do Marlins Way in a different manner today, with some Marlins rumors and news as well as a mention of some of the trades around baseball that have already gone down.
According to Juan C. Rodriguez of the Sun-Sentinel on his Twitter account, the Marlins are likely to stand pat for today’s trade deadline, but that does not mean that a last minute deal won’t pop up.
Don’t look for Marlins to do anything RT @Jrod24_ hearing anything about a trade? Or just rumors

Could Red Sox sway Marlins to move Stanton? | The Fish Pond
It’s a day away from the non-waiver Trade Deadline, and all appears quiet in Marlins camp. Wednesday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline is expected to come and go with little to no activity. Still, you never know.
The Marlins are gauging interest in Juan Pierre and Placido Polanco.

Tino Martinez snapped and threw tantrums when Marlins players didn’t pick up baseballs.
That’s the gist of a Foxsports.com story in which Martinez gave his version of events that led to his resignation as Marlins hitting coach Sunday.
Stolen base artist Pierre robbed of one Monday | Sun-Sentinel
Juan Pierre is used to stealing bases, but he was the one who got robbed Monday.
In the 6-5 loss to Mets, Pierre entered as a pinch-runner at first in the ninth inning. Pierre stole second, his 19th of the season, uncontested.
Peavy traded to Red Sox in three-team trade | USA Today
In the biggest trade this month preceding Wednesday’s non-waiver trade deadline, the Boston Red Sox, Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers pulled off a three-way trade that accomplishes everyone’s intentions.
Callaspo, 30, is expected to platoon at second base with Eric Sogard for Oakland, which entered play Tuesday with a 63-43 record and a six-game lead atop the American League West standings.
Here at Marlin Maniac:
The Major League Tradining Deadline is just 2 days away and we are going to continue our game on Marlin Maniac that puts you in the Marlins General Manager’s chair.
Coming in 2013 season, Marlins fans weren’t expecting that the young Cuban right hander would be called up so early in the season but extenuating circumstances like injuries forced the front office’s hand in promoting the young Fernandez.
We have now surpassed the first half of the season and with Marlin Maniac author David Polakoff and I working on the mid-season top 20 prospect list, I thought it would be the perfect time to go over the preseason top 20 prospect list I made during the spring.
It is no secret that the Miami Marlins are all about saving money. This last offseason was proof that the Marlins have, and will continue to worship the bottom dollar at the expense of winning. That being said, Loria has claimed numerous times that he is interested in fielding a team that wins championships and is built for the long haul. In a market that struggles to draw fans, and a TV contract that is less than ideal, it can be difficult to afford big name stars at the price tag that they command. The most effective way for a team in the Marlins situation is to take a page from their neighbors from northern Florida.
Both Jose Fernandez and Steve Cishek were rewarded Monday afternoon for having big weeks for their team, the Miami Marlins. Marlins ace Jose Fernandez and closer Steve Cishek were named co-winners of the National League Player of the Week Award.
On a night in which fans were bidding on a fantasy auction for different packages they could purchase, the Marlins were unable to successfully bid on a victory. Throughout the first couple innings of the game, fans were probably thinking that they would be witnessing yet another great pitching duel, as both starters did not allowed a base hit.
Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reported that the Boston Red Sox would be “willing to part with whatever it takes” to pry Giancarlo Stanton from the Marlins. The Marlins have repeatedly said they are not trading Stanton, but do the Red Sox have enough top prospects for them to even consider it?
Fresh off of a one run victory last night, the New York Mets wanted to come out and establish offensive production early on. Fortunately for the Marlins, righty Nathan Eovaldi would not allow that to happen.
